Publisher Description

This good girl is ready to be bad…

He may be at a romance readers’ convention, but a naked woman in the elevator is not what horror writer Ryan Wheeler expects. Now he can’t take his eyes off of her—and not just because he saw her naked, though her luscious curves certainly aren’t helping the matter. She’s beautiful, funny, snarky…and a complication he doesn’t need.

Running into her teen heartthrob while naked wasn’t exactly part of romance novelist Andi Palmer’s weekend plans. Worse, he doesn’t recognize her and gives her a fake name. Years ago, he shot her down in the worst possible way, and now this? It’s time for a little down-and-dirty revenge.

Ryan’s more than a little turned on by this good girl who wants to be bad. But things aren’t what they seem, and the secrets they’re keeping from each other might just end this sexy little rendezvous before it ever begins…

Judging a Book by it's Cover:
Bare feet, some naked or disrobed legs. Synopsis sounds like fun.

Looking Deeper:
Third-person POV. She's a romance writer attending a conference, he's a horror writer researching an allegedly haunted room at the hotel they are staying at. He also happens to be the older brother of the boy she had a crush on as a teen, the boy who broke her heart and destroyed her self-confidence. When she mistakes him for his brother, he tries to tell her, but she wants the fantasy of "two strangers meeting".
I really like the Ryan character, but was frustrated by his lack of insistence in telling her the truth. Andi was a harder character to like, for me, because she was driven by payback and revenge, while pretending to be something she wasn't as well. Their chemistry was okay, but I was turned off by the fact that he allowed a level of intimacy with her thinking he was his brother... kinda skeevy in my opinion. Secondary characters were okay. Dialogue was good, interaction was interesting. The plot had some fun moments, Ryan's such a good sport. There were some conflicts along the way, most were resolved well. Predictability was low. The conclusion was good, mostly solid. I'd have liked to have "seen" Nolan's apology to Andi occur face-to-face so maybe she could have closure on her childhood and move forward in a healthier manner. Also, it would have been nice to know what occurred with Allie, too, since that was brought up so often.
Overall, the story itself was fun, but the lack of communication following and regarding to the mistaken identity and the fact that he's having sex with and falling for a girl that thinks he's his brother. That should have been a big enough mood-breaker! Not something easily overlooked.

Rating: [R] ~ Score: 4.0 ~ Stars: 4

Andi Palmer, romance writer, was in Vegas for a book convention. On her way to a meeting she got stuck in an elevator with the only man she ever loved and never wanted to see again. Ryan Grayson, horror writer, knew she was familiar but never would have thought she'd mistake him for his younger brother Nolan. Every time he tried to tell her who he was she would stop him. He didn't believe in happily ever after...did he?

This is another great story by Catherine Fox. I'm sure glad it didn't stay in Vegas. I can't wait to read more!
